I'm on my mobile, but the picture files Dont seem to be sending. I don't have any other serious medical problems, but I'm allergic to ibuprofen and penicillin. I'm not taking any medication.

Hi Dr Rick I've added the pictures, but still waiting for feedback.
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 10 months ago.

Thank you for the pictures.

Those look like milia. This is from dead skin cells getting trapped beneath the skin, especially after being out in the heat.

They can be treated by using a deep skin cleanser or seeing a dermatologist for a session of microdermabrasion.

Does this make sense to you?

lol, it does. Thank you. I've been using a cleanser on my face for the last few days and that's helped.
